Woman survives tornado

MANSFIELD, Ga. -- A tornado picked up a home with a woman and dog inside and moved it 70-feet. Both the woman and the dog survived.

The EF 2 tornado hit the home Friday in Mansfield, about 45 miles southeast of Atlanta.

The tornado hit so quickly the National Weather Service never even had time to issue a warning.

There were no sirens or TV warnings telling her to take cover.

Her home was thrown 70 feet, trapping her inside.

"I was pinned like that and I didn't know if I was going to live," said Linda Hough. "It didn't really give you a chance to get real scared it hit so fast."

The woman suffered a broken ankle and her dog was injured but both are expected to be okay.

Her home of 27 years is gone.
